After a brief transition, I’m happy to announce … I’m your new Atlanta Bargain Hunter!
And the timing couldn’t be better.
Kids are back in school, iPhone 5 is on shelves, stores have launched holiday layaways and Black Friday is fast approaching. Whew! It’s enough to make a savvy shopper’s head spin. As always, think of the Atlanta Bargain Hunter as your guide and companion through it all.
In addition to keeping you informed about the best deals and steals throughout metro Atlanta, I’ll be sharing information that impacts your life as a consumer, whether it’s how you spend your money, make your money or manage your money.
To me, bargain hunting is a bit of a sport that can involve pursuing, comparing and couponing until you get the merchandise you want or need. The thrill of the hunt is in my DNA. Sometimes the payoff is a super-low price, and sometimes it just means getting great value at a price acceptable to you.
You know the friend who calls, texts or tweets that your favorite whatever is on sale? That’s me. But that’s you, too. When it comes to deal-spotting, the more eyes the better. Let me know — via this blog’s comments section, or through Twitter, Facebook or email — when you spot a can’t-miss deal. Tune in daily for updates on deals, specials and sales, including some that are exclusive to the Atlanta Bargain Hunter.
Despite declarations from some of our nation’s most esteemed economists, it still feels like we are in a money slump. Are you underwater in your home? Do you plan to drive your car until the wheels fall off? Are most of your investments sitting in the belly of a ceramic pig? I feel your pain. Seriously.
You’ll find guidance and advice here in our regular features, plus special posts on topics particularly important and timely to you. Look for some new Atlanta Bargain Hunter features in the near future as well, including giveaways, polls and reader profiles.
I hope you’ll visit often to respectfully share your experiences, questions, thoughts and suggestions.
